Earlier this week I completed the second draft of Echoes and sent it off to beta readers. It came in a bit shorter than I anticipated after edits—approx. 68k words, down from 78k—but it moves at a really good pace, and I don’t know if I want to add filler just to get the word count up. I’m going to wait until I get some notes to make a final decision, to see if anything needs to be fleshed out more.
If all goes according to plan, I look forward to sharing Echoes with you in April or May.
